Olde Southport Village Shoppes is a perfectly charming collection of about a half dozen local stores and services that will delight downtown explorers of all interests. Located along Howe Street, on the outskirts of the heart of the downtown area, this small shopping plaza is a charming way to experience a taste of everything this coastal community has to offer.
While the street side exterior might not look like much, visitors who park and explore will find a handful of virtually “hidden” cottages and storefronts that are painted in cheerful coastal colors, and which are connected via a small bench-lined brick pathway, as well as a network of shaded porches. There’s an eclectic collection of shops found within this small community, which includes a local spa, a bath and beauty shop, a pottery shop, a local bakery, and a gift shop. As a result, visitors will find a wealth of local treasures which range from local honey and jams to unique locally crafted artworks and pottery, which are all found within a laid-back and small town atmosphere. A perfect complement to the historic and charming streets that are the hallmark of the Downtown Southport area, the Olde Southport Village Shoppes are a must-stop for avid vacationing shoppers.
